The Review
Feedback summary: 

Blue Marble Media has produced several award-winning videos throughout a several-year engagement, proving to be a talented and steady partner. The team is thorough in its discovery sessions, leading to creative solutions and systematic workflows. Their strategic thinking is on display at all times.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the global director of account management for a state government entity. My job is to market our state around the world across multiple channels—including digital, print, events and trade shows, public relations, and international missions.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Blue Marble Media?

We’ve partnered with Blue Marble Media for several years now. We engage them when we need to tell a story through video. Oftentimes, that’s when we need 15- or 30-second commercials to run in paid advertising campaigns or when we need to showcase our state during targeted prospect meetings with large enterprise brands that we’re trying to attract to our state.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

For each project, we start with a thorough discovery session to determine the narrative we want to convey. If we’re writing a script, Blue Marble Media’s team has an efficient process of crafting and reviewing that content. If the video includes interviews, they transcribe all of those quotes and assist us in selecting the most concise or powerful options. They are equipped with a talented crew of videographers, and they have a diverse post-production skill set in terms of animation, infographics, and transitions.

What is the team composition?

I've worked with Cara (President/Creative Director, Blue Marble Media) and Ben (Owner/Creative Director, Blue Marble Media). They are often supported by their director of production, several of their editors, and an array of videographers that they employ for different projects.

How did you come to work with Blue Marble Media?

They were contracted by one of our agencies of record to produce a piece about our state. That started the relationship many years ago. Whenever we receive bids from other companies, Blue Marble Media has always been our top choice based on their capabilities, cost, and ability to deliver a great product.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent more than $500,000 over the past six years or so, which is when I began working with them.

What is the status of this engagement?

The relationship might predate me taking on my role, but I’ve worked with them since at least 2013.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

It’s tough to tell if the videos have much of an impact on whether or not a company chooses to bring their company to our state, but the videos themselves have been instrumental in our presentations to those prospects. On a grander scale, we tend to win awards at global competitions thanks to the videos we produce with Blue Marble Media. That’s telling in itself.

How did Blue Marble Media perform from a project management standpoint?

Their project management process has always been highly efficient. Everything is systematic in order to achieve the best results. They’ve also been very deliberate and thoughtful in how they write a script, capture video, or edit content.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They pay attention to the video marketing environment and what is resonating with various audiences. They incorporate new technology and tactics into the process.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We deal in a crowded marketplace, and competing for online views is more challenging than ever before. To rise above the fray takes a lot of creativity and strategic thinking. That’s an ongoing process. You’re only as good as your last video. That’s not only a challenge for us as a consumer but also for Blue Marble Media as our vendor.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I’d simply recommend that future clients weigh the online portfolios of other vendors against that of Blue Marble Media and see how they compare.
